Imagine a living breathing city, but for the first time ever an online one. Streets full of vehicles, thousands of civilians going about their daily life. Now introduce 100 players to this online city. Their mission in life is to achieve fame and fortune, and achieve it fast. Naturally many will take to a life of crime, feeding on the city, its people and its businesses. The other players though, the enforcers, will feed on these criminal players.

What will the outcome be?

The great thing is, we don’t know. It’s an online sandbox. Many players will gain fame, fortune or notoriety. Alliances will be formed, rivalries will be bitter. One thing we do know, every player will be unique. Thanks to leading edge technology, players can personalize their looks, clothing, vehicles and music.

Welcome to the next evolution of action games into the persistent online space.

Features:

* APB blends fast-paced third-person action, deep customization, and meaningful achievement to create a unique persistent online multiplayer experience.

* APB utilizes cutting edge technology to create a “living, breathing” city where players clash — on foot and in vehicles — to determine the future of San Paro, a fictional metropolis, where two factions — Enforcement and Criminal — vie for control.

* APB is being developed by Realtime Worlds — creators of the award-winning Xbox 360 title Crackdown — and is one of the largest and most ambitious online game projects in development worldwide.
